Empirical strategies

By Joshua Angrist (MIT)
June 29 - July 2, 2009


Welcome to the 6th NIPE Summer School website.


The “Empirical Strategies” course covers topics in econometrics and empirical modelling that are likely to be most useful to applied researchers. The main theoretical ideas are illustrated with empirical examples, mostly coming from the recent literature on policy evaluation to which Professor Angrist has made numerous contributions.


Here you will find information on the contents of the course and relevant deadlines, as well as some practical details.


We hope you will find what you are looking for. In case you have questions, do not hesitate to contact us.


We look forward to seeing you in Braga.
